  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I would recommend Academy Class to anyone looking to learn how to use Adobe products – the lessons take place in a relaxed environment with industry professionals, and they take time to make each project enjoyable and easy to follow. The service overall was excellent and I will continue to use AC for future training.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Instructor has a great understanding of the content. Very useful, now designing everything QUICKLY, and also using functions I was not aware of to better my materials. Thank you for inspiring my learning all over again!

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have just completed 3 weeks of training with AC & feel confident in my new found skills. They are helpful & attentive and they do their best to tailor the course to the needs of the small numbered classes. If you are looking for an Adobe course, I would really recommend using AC.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    The whole course delivered through Academy Class stood head and shoulders above what I expected, it was a very professional yet friendly and relaxed environment. The lecturers were able to teach not only the course software but also and very usefully introduce cross over elements helping to broaden the way I use and see my Adobe suite. I have already recommended Creative Class to my colleagues and friends and intend to return in the near future for further courses as its more than value for money, its an experience!

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is the second course I have attended with Academy Class, which in itself should tell you something, but the standard of delivery and content is very good and the Trainer, Ian Gilbert, was very approachable and knowledgeable – answering all of my questions and giving me the opportunity to practice specific skills that I wanted to use in my own business area even if they were not intended in the syllabus. After you attend the course you are given access to a suite of online tutorial videos to help you refresh your learning. The location of the office is just out of town (approx 20 minute walk from Piccadilly Station) and has very good facilities and an on site canteen. Lunch was provided (value of £5) each day in the canteen.
